Now that is a throne woerthy of a sitting on
Thats the 1988 AC, in which the Stars and Stripes 60' catamaran (thank you, Burt Rutan) whooped ass on the above pictured 120-foot leaner:This also from Jim Bolland. I should ask the readers about what they are seeing here and where it could be.
The story behind the picture is about a grandfather out on the water and seeing the boat for the first time. The grandson is asking: "Pop, is she flying now?"

Verrey nice, wood mosaic-licke pictiures ist caulled Intarsia.I bought this piece of art for my dad for Christmas when I was in high school. At the time the shopping mall had these art vendors in the center court area and one of them had a bunch of these wooden style art pieces. One of the pieces was this sailboat. I really liked it and bought it for him. It reminded me of our family boat at the time. It was his favorite gift I ever game him and still hangs in the main dining room of his home.

Nailed it. These look exactly like what I bought. Cool!!
Hmm- I’m assuming that this is the “Lady Brassey” the cartoon refers to. Looks like she was an interesting character and a seasoned world cruiser. I have no idea what the further context was.
She must have been quite a gal: once around the world and twice around the Horn and many adventures in the Atlantic.Hmm- I’m assuming that this is the “Lady Brassey” the cartoon refers to. Looks like she was an interesting character and a seasoned world cruiser.
